Re: Perseus

Hi, The SoureForge code download you see is a complete server install, designed for and tested on Linux servers. It requires a good base of Linux knowledge and familiarity. As the code circulates, it is our hope that modular versions of Perseus will emerge. We are working on virtual machine releases...

3) Morphological analysis. Perseus has done this, but the code isn't freely available (or is it?). This is a rather off-the-wall idea, but using some kind of natural language processing techniques we could have a program "learn" Latin/Greek by making successive queries to the Perseus Morpheus engin...

Hi, Well, we scan with Infothek Scan, and use Infothek Reformat for things like splitting and combining the multi-page tiffs. It's bare-bones gray software, and can be trial-by-error, but relatively cheap and anything I can buy or upgrade without leaving my desk and install within the hour is fine b...

In Boston (Bah-stone) you would draw that 'a' out about four feet to kaaaah-m. I'm a native Bostonian, and in most settings, I would say kah(l)m.
